A work in progress: Scott

download (6)


Scott was a breath of fresh air

In a stuffy academic environment

That made him no less intelligent

It merely demonstrated his humanity


He appreciated academic excellence

But he also recognised conscious effort

Students were respected individuals

Not merely ‘bums on seats’, anonymous


He inspired me to write with my heart

In collaboration with my intellect

To write with intent, interest and authority

But remain true to what I valued


I often think of him since his death

A book in his memory is being edited

A fitting tribute to someone dearly loved

Who taught much through how he lived


Scott Eastham was a very beloved Media Studies lecturer who was sadly lost to cancer.  He was an incredible man and influenced many students, not just in what he taught but how he chose to teach it and in how he lived his life.  I miss him deeply.

It is a work in progress because I believe I may add to it over time or refine it.
